    Driveshaft

    Thank You. They are calling pinion and ring gear bearings along with the driveshaft. I am going to pick it up this afternoon. I would think they are using overkill on the differentail to cover thier behind. The noise is noticeable but then I've been an automotive technician for forty years so maybe I'm more attuned to it. It's not like it is grinding and the wheel is falling off ( I hope cause I do wear hearing aids ) First time with a european bike, regular ride was/is a ZRX1200R Kawasaki I've had for 20 years.

    Driveshaft

    Afternoon davesk1200lt OK, thanks, still can't give you much until we know what bearings need replacing & how bad the present ones are.

    Cars..

    definitely entertaining ... 65 seemed quicker overall and probably would have pulled away if they ever made a pass stick , but 19 drove perfectly in front without "blocking" . Slick racing surface definitely added to the excitement Did 65 ever complete the pass?

    Driveshaft

    Afternoon davesk1200lt Probably not dangerous BUT that is just a guess based on (basically no inspection or riding that motorcycle). We don't even know for sure what BMW model you are talking about. You are posting in the hexhead forum but your name is 1200lt?

    Driveshaft

    I've just been told I need a new driveshaft and a bunch of bearings on my 09. I told them to reassemble and I would think about it. I took it in because I think I hear a bearing noise all the time and worse if I lean either way. Dealer quote $5115.51 I just bought the bike and only put 3 or 4 hundred miles on it. The noise has been there since I got it. Bike has 70,000 lm or about 42,000 miles on it. So.. question. is it dangerous to drive in this condition ?

    I used to go the The Ace on a regular basis in my former life (!) but since retirement not so often. Best wishes for your trip, soon hopefully.

    Bridgestone Battlax T31

    With both of my tires at 2/32" and starting to cup, I need to start looking for deals. I see the T32's are out now. Anyone know if there's been any improvement (or that they didn't screw up the wear rate at least)?

    4 day weekend trip. dumped stuff on highway.

    So sorry to read about your trip having such a mental stain from the loss of goods. At least you are physically good and otherwise, it looks like you had a good trip.

    Bridgestone Battlax T31

    I didn't measure the new tire depth (installed at 13,350 miles) but here's a little data showing how my T-31GTs are fairing. Ten thousand miles and still going strong. The wear appears to me to be pretty linear.

    Ya, but how many scoops of mulch can it haul? Truck for sale
  17. Saturday evening, all hell broke loose in our adopted home town of Naperville, where our son is a firefighter/paramedic. It ventured further east and created more havoc in other towns, but in Naperville alone it damaged around 130 homes, rendered around 20 uninhabitable, and resulted in around a half dozen hospitalizations. One of those hospitalized was apparently asleep in the home shown here; the Naperville Fire Department’s Technical Rescue Team was able to extricate both of the residents from the debris. I haven’t had the chance to talk with my son, who was among the initial responders, but it was a very long night. The power of tornadoes is truly incredible.

    Shad 58x top case

    @Mike I did buy the model specific Mount for my rack. I don’t know if it was missing but I didn’t get the universal with my case. I opted for ease of mounting and security with the model specific Mount for the rack

    Shad 58x top case

    Nice! I had a similarly good experience with installing a Shad top case on my ‘14 RT. The BMW option is nice and, of course, integrates perfectly with the stock luggage rack, but the cost is exorbitant. The Shad SH50 I opted for is every bit the equivalent of the BMW-branded top case, but it’s a fraction of the cost. Unlike your experience, for my ‘14 I found that the universal mounting bracket was unsteady. So, I bought the model-specific mount, which works perfectly. For those unfamiliar with their products, Shad actually makes some of the OEM cases for BMW. You give up the BMW logo and the convenience of one key for everything, but don’t really lose anything in terms of quality. Their products are certainly worth considering.
